I have a running application that on wamp 2.2
That contains mysql database already.
Now for more development, I need to work with Google data Studio, that asking to connect to mysql.
Since the database is on premises, How to allow to google which provide a range of whitelist to access my localhost remotely.

I dont know Google Data Studio, but if you want to allow a remote site to access your local machine this is something that we do not advise on.

There are numerous security issues that could trip you/us up and therefore this is a subject that we do not get involved in.

(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.2.0 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache versions MULTIPE> <PHP versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Versions MULTIPLE>
<MariaDB versions MULTIPLE> <phpMyAdmin versions MULTIPLE> <MySQL Workbench 8.0.19>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo
